DoubleBafang??? Bangarang Rufio!

Post by Leebolectric » Jan 15 2016 4:25pm

...So yeah...my Tangent kit is the shizzle, everything I wanted...but it's better for private areas to really open it up. hehe :)

...also my Sweetie was looking left out of the fun, and I can't have that!

...so...here we are....dual BafangHD beasts...so we can get out more together...WHEEEEE!!!!
She's not an aggressive rider like me, and has never riden Moto like me...those details made her E-Bike GRIN bigger than ever.
She giggled for miles and miles...no pix of the ride, we were having TOO MUCH FUN!!!

First hers...a 2009 6" travel KHS Velvet frame starting point....extra beefy tubings, KHS's aren't light.
Fox VanRC2180 fork.
HopeMotoV2 brakes and vented rotors. (currently mechanical calipers till hydro reed cutoff gets here)
PUSH tuned RockShox Monarch rear shock.
SRAM 10p shifter/derailleur/chain/cassette1070
AzonicOutlaw wheels, Kenda Tires with tubes.
BaffangHD with Panasonic PF 11.5ah High Power SharkPack (Eclipse chainring coming)
56.6 lbs complete

All the power runs to the back of the seat for Battery connections, for easy switching to backpack backup battery on long rides.
No room IN this frame, so the MacGuyvered top tube mount was designed.
The seatpost needs me to loosen TWO allen bolts now when I want to raise or lower the seat, otherwise normal.
She can standover it still, and it doesn't ride horribly with the high weight as it's a pretty small battery.

Nice!

Is there not just enough room for the battery in front of the down tube from the BBSHD upwards? That way you will lower the center of gravity from the bike considerable.

...and here's mine...
2010 Turner 5spot frame.
Fox RP23 rear shock, RockShox PIKE RCT3
HOPE Tech3 E4 brakes with floating 180mm rotors.
Hadley72pt Hubs, Mavic823 DH rims, Maxxis Tires tubeless.
Thompson Dropper, Hope pedals, WTB seat. Straitline stem, Chromag bars, Sensus grips.
SRAM 10 sp shifter/derailleur/chain/cassette1070
StemCaptian compass cap.
BaffangHD with Luna 52v12.5ah 25r HIGH POWER triangle pack. (eclipse chainring coming)

This bike also has a seatpost connection for backpack battery on longer rides.

I use TWO of the inner lockrings...no outer lockring...much more torque is abe to be applied :wink:

Check out that awesome chain-line with the stock ring, 73bb no spacers. :D

Both have similar top speed...but the Tangent gets there ALOT faster. :lol:
Tangent climbs harder, everything it does, it does better....
...but I do miss the PedalAssist "Bionic" feeling, might need to add that feature.

The Tangent better! It is a sweet looking drive in black. Nice! $1800 but what great features!
